I've compiled the i386 linux kernel 2.6.21
Now the write to the floppy is very slow:
there is an access to the drive, then 5 seconds of wait,
then the access, then 5 seconds of wait ... and so on,
resulting in a bandwidth of 1.2 kByte/sec.
This happens if mounted with sync option; without that option the
behaviour is normal.
I've googled with no results.
Maybe you can suggest me something
